    I have a small collection of single malt, but none of my bottles is worth above EUR 100 .

    But there are some really rare and old ones, which are hard to afford ;)

    And someone might buy it to drink it (vs save for resale / collection). Talking about pouring money down the drain.

    I agree, such a whisky is just rare. In terms of taste you might get similar ones around 100 USD. But then again it might be very special for someone to drink a preoduct that was produced so many decades ago. If such a person can easily afford it, why should he or she not do it.

    It is just a shame if people just drink it to prove they can afford it, withoput appreciating it.

    What I hate are examples like those people who bought a couple of bottles of extremely rare champagne for several 1000 USD just to show they have the money and mainly smashed them on the ground then at one of their parties ...
    that was a couple of years ago though.

    I can't help but think that if I bought that, I would receive a box filled with broken glass after shipping.

    there is always the option of picking it up personally... would not add that much to the overall costs ;)
